Why do you need absence management software?

As a result of the United Kingdom’s high rate of Employee Absence (a new study shows that most employees take 6.4 days off sick each year), employers face a number of challenges, including: managing the initial notification call from an employee who is not feeling well; ensuring that work is covered during the absence; ensuring that employees are paid for time off as per their contract; obtaining GP or Occupational Health reports in accordance with company policy; holding welfare and return to work meetings; making sure employees are supported upon returning to work.  Our software can help with this!
